Αcrylic on canvas landscape painting
It is an acrylic on canvas piece, a magnificent, little piece by a self taught Athenian painter, who mostly paints on canvas, but has lately started painting on wood, as well.
This is from a new series that he's painted for my gallery, all Greek themes, all with a boat and a fraction of sea in them.
An amazing piece, framed in wood by the artist himself at a very affordable price.
He paints the same theme again, but it is never the same.
It shows a tall house in a paved courtyard with a lovely, old fashined bicycle standing at its left.
There is a cypress tree next to the house.In the middle of the picture, there is a wide sea channel with a whimsical, pirate like sailboat and a shark like fish in another corner.
The boat is reflected in the water.
In the background there is a peninsula like piece of land, jutting into the sea with some trees on it.
The colours are deep, burnt orange, various shades of brown, navy blue, spots of turquoise, red and yellow.The sea is a luminous turquoise and aqua with hints of lime.
The painter is not unaccustomed to modern techniques, so his surface has an amazing texture and depth. The deep contrast of warm and cool colours here, makes this little painting riveting.
It measures about 20cm in length x 20 cm in height x 2cm in width ( 7.87 '' x 7.87 '' x 0.78 '')
It gets sent to you in an extra safe package of bubble wrap and paper, reinforced with hard cardboard or styrofoam.
